Copying images isn't cool. Stealing images and using them for personal gain — and that includes eBay — is bad. But you know what's even more uncool? Websites that use Javascript to disable the context menu. It's pointless, because there are so many ways around it. I keep an internal database (something like Mediaman and Libra, only not) of all my media, and I need pictures for that database. It's infurating when the publisher (yeah, Marvel, I'm lookin' at you) has a fancy picture, but tries to prevent me from getting it.

Since I'm not a big fan of scripts that include everything and use exclude (it makes me nervous), this script just "includes" and by default. However, you can easily add more. Just follow the tutorial here, but add to the "included" pages instead of "excluded".
